A VERY GREAT AND VARIED ENTERTAIN
Other shows may come and go, but Sells

like Tennyson's book, seem) destined to go
on forever. They have already been under
one and the same ownership and manage

which followed Senator Mitchei said
regarding an appropriation for the
government work on the Willamette
river at Corvallis, that he had made
personal inquiry as to what action XT.
S. Engineer Major Handbury would
take toward continuing the work of
improving the clianel of the river here
and was inlormed that it was the ma
jor s intention to recommend to the
war department that the revetment be
continued np stream on the Linn side
for a distance of 3700 feet. The re
vetment, will be built of rock and pil
ing and it will take a considerable
sum of money to complete the work.
Had this work been done two years
ago it would have been of great bene
fit to the people on the Linn county
side. The damage by high water to
these people and this city has caused
the loss of a large amount of money.

A LIBERAL PROPOSITION.
Who has not heard of that paragon of
family papers, the enterprising and popular
Weekly Detroit Free Press? For a genera
tion its name has been a household word
and it has become a synonym for all that is
excellent, pure and elevating in journalism.
It is delightfully entertaining without resort
to cheap sensationalism, instructive without
being prosy or pedantic. Combining the
literary qualities of the expensive magazine
with the bright, breeey characteristics of
the newspaper, it leaves nothing to be de
sired by tbe average reader.. It is looked
upon ns a welcome visitor by every family
who reads it, while thousands regard it as
indispensable and would on no accoust go
without it. An enormous circulation of
125,000 copies per week attests its wouder
ful popularity. Recognizing the fact that
there are those who are nnfamiliar with its
surpasssing merits as a home paper, the
publishers offea to send The Free Press to
them for the balance of this year (oyer five
months) for only 30 cents a club of four
for $1 or a club of ten for $2. All our
readers should subscribe at once. Send for

OREGON, FRIDAY, JULY 31,
AN OLD SETTLER.
HE TALKS OF EARLY DAYS FREIGHT
CHARGES, ETC., ETC
A few facts furnished us by one of
the oldest settlers (Mr. Ashby Pierce)
of this county may help in a measure
to more fully enlighten the people of
to-day of the importance of competi
tion in transportation lines, not only
to the farmer but the entire popukce
of any state or community. This is,
or should be, amongst the most im
portant topics of discussion: "Can we
have too many competing lines of
transportation tor public good?" The
history of early days certainly demon
strate that "competition is the life of
trade." Therefore the combined ef
forts of the residents of the Willam
mette valley should be turned toward
the improvement of the Willamette
river so as as to make transportation
between Corvallis and Portland pos
sible the whole year round, for the
navigation of this river was the means
of the first reduction in freight rates
and is yet the means of making trans
portation between here and Portland
much cheaper than they would other
' Mr. Pierce was born in Harrison
connty, Indiana, in 1821, and after
ward he removed with his parents to
Knox county, 111. In March 1847, he
joined Nathanual Brown's train and
started for Oregon; arriving in Oregon
City in the fall of the sanie year. In
1847 he came to Benton county and
located on the farm now owned by
Caleb Davis, which is some five miles
west of this city. Here he remained
until the year 1849, when he went to
California in search of gold. . He did
not remain there but a very short time
however, when he returned to Linn
county and commenced selling goods
for Lay ton Bros., who were then lo-
caled in the first frame building ever
erected in Albany, and which was
16x16 feet. At that time Corvallis
had never been thought of. In August
of the same year he became engaged
as clerk for the firm of Hill & Hastings
who were then running a store in a log
cabin about one mile below where the
town of Jefferson now stands, on the
Santiam river. In those days all the
goods were hauled from Portland with
ox teams at a rate of $100 per ton, and
in order to get this rate it was neces
sary to furnish the teams with a load
on their return trip, and the modest
little sum of $2 per bushel was charged
for hauling potatoes from Syracuse to
Oregon City, a distance of 65 miles.
In September, 1851, Mr. Pierce re
turnnd to Albany and bought out the
store then owned by J. M. McConnell.
In the fall of this year the steamer
Cannemah began to navigate the river.
This was the first steamer to make the
voyage up the river, and with this com
menced the reduction in freight rates.
The first freight hauled by the Can
nemah from Portland to Albany was
charged for at the rate of $60 per ton.
This was a reduction of $40 per ton
over the ox team freight line and the
residents in- the valley began to look
for better times. Other boats were
finally put on the river so that in a few
years the competition between the
boats brought freight down until dur
ing the year 1870, by having goods
shipped in large lots, it was shipped for
$6 per ton. Then came another com
peting line; the O. & C. railroad was
built up the valley and freight was then
carried as low as $3 and $4 per ton, and
it kept coming down step by step until
during the eighties it was carried as
low as $150 and $2 per ton.
The contrast between the prices paid
then and those paid at the present time
is certainly wonderful and should fur
nish conclusive evidence that the more
competition there is in transportation
the better it is for the public in general.
In speaking of the rules of credit in
the early days Mr. Pierce said: "The
people in the valley were very poor and
needy and my bosses' instructed me to
credit all aud refuse credit to none. In
compliance with this order I trusted a
small band of Humpquab Indians, who
informed me through their interpreter
that they would pay for the same -In
three moons,' and this they" did like
Mr. Pierce lives just across the river
opposite Albany, in Benton county, and
now that he has became too old to en
gage longer in business activity we are
glad to know that ke is prepared to live
the remainder of hU life in ease.
CHANGES OF CLIMATE
Kill more people than is generally known.
Particularly is this the case in instances
where the constitution is delicate, and
among our immigrant population seeking
new homes in those portions of the West,
and where malaria and typhoid fevers pre
vail at certain seasons of the year. The
best preparative for a change of climate, or
ot diet and water which that change neces
sitates, is Hostetter's Stomach Bitters,
which not only fortifies the 8 j stem against
malaria, a variable temperature, damp, and
the debilitating effects of tropical heat, hut
is also the leading remedy for constipation,
dyspepsia, liver complaint, bodily troubles
specially apt to attrack immigrants and
visitors to regions near the equator, marin
ers and tourists. Whether used as a safe
guard by sea voyagers, travelers by land,
miners, or of agriculturalists in newly popu
lated districts, this fine specific has elicited
the most favorable testimony.
DOES THE CITY WANT TO HAVE ITS
Much interest is being tiken in this
question here lately. From the light
which has been shed on the subject
through the papers and among the
citizens talking the matter over on the
streets it would seem that if the cily
owned its own electric light plant it
might be run as satisfactorily to all
concerned as it is by the present com
pany; and the city still get as much
light as now at a much less cost in
proportion to the amount used.
Some of the citizens who have fig
ured on the matter think the, private
lighting might be reduced a third or
more and the city's lights still be kept
up as cheaply as before, thus insuring
a greatly increased number of private
consumers; no doubt many persons
will begin to use electric light when
the price comes down to the price of
oil or near that price.
The present electric light company
has a franchise covering a number of
years and already that franchise is be
ginning to indicate a future value
which makes it an inducement worth
considering for permanent investments.
Mr. Hurd is understood to be consid
ering a disposal of his interest, which
is a large interest, in the company to
parties who want a controling interest
in the plant as a permanent invest
ment. If he makes a sale of his stock
and the control passes into the hands
of others the city will undoubtedly lose
their present opportunity to get the
electric light plant at neat its cost
value. Mr. Hurd has expressed him
self as wishing to keep faith with the
city, who granted to him the franchise,
and would much rather sell to the city
than to individuals on that account.
But it would hardly be fair to ask him
to wait and keep on waiting an in
definite length of time while the city
is making up its mind to buy the plant.
Mr. Hurd is putting in another plant
at Roseburg where he has better in
ducements from private customers than
this company has and it is only busi
ness for a man to go where he can do
the best. When he moves up there
he will undoubtedly sell out here and
if the city intends to buy the electric
plant the time is now.
The matter ought to be submitted to
a vote and if the taxpayers want these
improvements the council should lose
no time in having the feasibility of it
investigated by a proper committee and
the matter gotten under way as soon as
possible. We believe the people of
Corvallis want to go ahead and the
sooner the better.
